Diesel spillage closes further lane following two-lorry A1 crash at Grantham




Emergency services are now on the scene of a collision between two lorries on the A1 at Grantham.

The crash happened just before 6.30am this morning (Wednesday) northbound, closing the carriageway.

One southbound carriageway is also closed due to a diesel spillage, which is being dealt with by Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue. Crews are also using an environmental protection kit to prevent fuel entering nearby drains.
